Pest Bird Control

Shield Facilities provides a safe, professional and discrete pest control bird service. When you hire us, you can rest assured that we will carry out this work responsibly and ensure that your pest problem is dealt with as efficiently as possible whilst maintaining safety and discretion.

The best way to prevent a pest bird infestation from developing is to implement bird proofing measures such as wire meshing, netting and anti-land/nest spikes in areas of the building where birds may congregate or access the building.

Birds can be an incredibly difficult pest to control using non-lethal methods.

If a pest bird infestation has already developed, the most efficient and humane method to disperse the infestation is by implementing a pest bird shooting programme, providing the termination of the specific breed of bird falls within the general licensing for pest bird shooting.

Shooting is the most effective and humane measure to quickly reduce pest populations

At Shield Facilities, we carry out pest control shooting programmes regularly as it is the most efficient and humane method of reducing bird populations in a short period of time to eliminate the costs and problems caused by the pests much more efficiently. We also utilise re-infestation pest-proofing measures so that not only do we swiftly deal with the current pest bird infestation, but we also reduce the likelihood that the problem will return after a short period. In some cases, though, shooting is the only way to keep pest bird populations at a low level depending on the infrastructure of the location that has the pest problem. The majority of our bird shooting work is limited to feral pigeons, wood pigeons, magpies and corvids. Since these birds breed so prolifically, it can be very difficult to deal with them using non-lethal methods. Bird infestations spread incredibly fast once they find a nice warm sheltered location to nest, hide and sleep, so what starts out as a small problem will quickly develop into a much larger problem and harder to deal with. In addition, birds make their nests in secluded areas, so you may not even realise the size of the infestation until the next generation of offspring emerges. Whatever the cause, and size of the pest problem, the fact of the matter is that pest bird shooting is an essential method to have at our disposal, and whenever necessary, we have the skills, experience, and licenses required to carry out such work successfully and most importantly, safely.

How do pest control shooting programmes operate?

Our pest control technicians use professional-grade moderated air rifles for an accurate, quiet, and discrete approach to pest control shooting along with night vision and thermal imaging equipment. By using such equipment, the technicians can easily find the target pests in any lighting conditions and are more efficient using silent airguns that do not scare off the rest of the pests.

The pest control technicians who carry out our shooting work are all fully trained and experienced in pest shooting. We take public safety extremely seriously and work hard to ensure that we always act responsibly and discretely when using air rifles. Every pest control shooting task is carefully planned to be as efficient and safe as possible.

To assess whether or not pest control shooting may be the best option for your specific problem or more traditional methods of pest control services, Shield Facilities are offer free surveys and inspections to all of our prospective customers. One of our expert surveyors will come out to your property at a time that suits you and perform an in-depth analysis and risk assessment of the pest problem and your site. They will then give you an accurate up-front cost about how much the task will cost and what methods we will utilise to control your pest problem and offer advice on further preventative measures to reduce the likelihood of a re-infestation.
